Hi Bob. Yes, it's the ultracore. No unexpected cracks, except those due to my mishandling of the equipment! It got caught in the shorebreak on Lake Michigan and the mast dented the upper edge of one of the rails next to the mast foot. Light cracks filled with a dash of Solarez epoxy and good as new!
Thanks Reid. That really was a fun session. Interesting you picked up on the size of the waves: to me, on the video footage, it appeared deceivingly smaller than it actually was. It wasn't huge by all means, but the chop was substantial - maybe 1 to 2 feet at best but really close together with a nice steep ramp on some. Anyone with a board smaller than 100l would have been able to take some air in these conditions. If one day you plan to make it to Winnebago or Sheboygan, just send a note and I'll be there! Cheers
Awesome vid, Gregory! Yeah, roughly the length of the music you use is a good benchmark. Nice GoPro work. Wow, that's nice swell forming on Lake Winnebago for 14 to 18 knots. I need to get up there and sail with you and Jacob.
